So a crowd of lefties chanting violent slogans, cussing, signs with “F*CK Capitalism” etc. This is the SRLC so there is national media there. Yet at the time of this writing google search shows NO national news outlets reporting the story, only the locals and the blogs.
Allee Bautsch is the chief campaign funs raiser for Gov. Bobby Jindal.
Gateway Pundit reports:
Allee Bautsch and her boyfriend Joe Brown
The governor’s office said Monday that Allee Bautsch suffered a broken leg and her boyfriend suffered a concussion and fractured nose and jaw in the alleged incident. (KSLA)
I am the photographer for the LA GOP and I was at the Brennan fundraiser. When I left about one hour or so after all 3 of the governors left the crowd of protesters had grown. The were very nasty, signs were vulgar using the “F” word. As I left the restaurant I was yelled at – there was a family visiting the restaurant with a baby stroller – they had nothing to do with the fundraiser and they were being heckled using the “F” and “MF” words.. A couple of them made comments to me.

IUSB Vision UPDATE –
Yahoo News reported (4 days after the attack):
Allee Bautsch’s mother, Della Berning, has now joined a friend of Bautsch’s in telling Yahoo! News that, contrary to what Brown initially told police, Bautsch and Brown do believe that the attackers were a group of political protesters who followed them after they left the event.
The Yahoo News piece is very amusing in that they toss in editorialized comments and narrative through the “news” piece to imply that it wasn’t left wing anti-good government protestors who engaged in the violence, as they have on so many other occasions we have documented (please see our Violence category).
Police hear no evil, see no evil……
When news of last weekend’s assault of Republican campaign fundraiser Allee Bautsch and her boyfriend broke on Monday, police logs detailing crimes and complaints reported in the French Quarter that night did not list the attack on the pair.
That’s because the April 9 incident was first labeled a medical call, which meant no police report needed to be written. Indeed, according to the initial report released Friday by New Orleans police, it wasn’t until Monday that a detective was assigned to investigate the incident — in which Bautsch broke her leg and her boyfriend, Joseph Brown, broke his jaw.
Monday was also the day news reports and blogs began chattering about the attack, sometimes laden with the juicy possibility the attackers were anti-Republican protesters.
The initial incident report does not resolve the question of whether Bautsch and Brown were attacked by protesters, who had picketed the restaurant they were in earlier that night.
But the sequence of the NOPD’s response to an attack that left Bautsch with a broken leg and Brown with a fractured jaw and nose, raises questions about why the department didn’t deal with the incident as an assault from the get-go. Subsequent police statements and reports about the incident note that officers did respond to the scene, calling an ambulance to take Bautsch and Brown to the hospital.
This is where it gets really rich…
NOPD spokesman Bob Young said the explanation is simple: The responding officer didn’t know the extent of the couple’s injuries. That officer knew the couple needed help and was told that Brown had been in a fight, but concentrated on getting them medical assistance, he said.
If the officer had known how badly they were hurt, the case would have been reclassified immediately as some kind of battery, Young said.
New Orleans Police Spokesman said that the Police did not know there was this kind of attack and the police did not know the extent of the injuries… HELLO someone with a camera is on the scene and Bautsch said on the scene that they broke her leg… and look at her boyfriends face. If the B.S. is going to be THIS transparent NOPD needs to hire a new person to do spin for them.
